At least 308 deposits may be affected due to the law banning development of uranium and thorium in Kyrgyzstan, an independent expert, and member of a government group Alik Zhanuzakov believes.
He noted that the expert community provided its vision as soon as discussion of the bill began.
“Then we said: if you pass such a bill, which is unfounded, 80 deposits could die. Recently we have received an answer from the State Committee for Industry, Energy and Subsoil Use – 308 deposits will be forced to close, because they fall under the scope of the document. There are many coal ones among them,” said Alik Zhanuzakov. (24.kg/Ukrainian metal)
